Osage Beach development targets unique living for older adults
Courtesy of Lake of the Ozarks Business Journal April 2009: Four Missouri developers have announced The Rose at Tan-Tar-A, a unique concierge retirement living center to be constructed at Lake of the Ozarks, specifi cally Osage Beach. Dr. Steve Cohen, a retirement center consultant for 20 years, said The Rose at Tan-Tar- A would offer affordable luxury living featuring concierge services to take the hassle out of every day life, in fact, their motto is “inconvenience is not an option.” “Normally, if you have a problem, whether it’s connecting a high defi nition television or fi xing your computer, that means time out of your life,” Cohen said. “The very wealthy have a staff for those kinds of things, but everyone else has to spend 30 minutes on the phone or a day trying to connect wires.” At The Rose, residents will simply call the on-site concierge who will solve the problem. Although incredibly convenient, the program’s “shared ownership” means that The Rose will remain affordable.
